Pia Bolognesi and Giulio Bursi have worked together as Atelier Impopulaire since 2012. With a background in Art & Film theories (Phd in Visual Studies) their practice is focused on investigating the plural identities of visual languages and on deconstructing and reinterpreting their politics of representation. Favoring collaborative methods of cultural production, Atelier Impopulaire makes use of artistic and curatorial processes as tools for questioning received models of dissemination and exhibition making.
Atelier Impopulaire projects have been presented internationally at La Biennale di Venezia, Centre Pompidou, Tate Modern, Kyoto University of Art and Design, Berlin Art Week, La Triennale di Milano, ZKM Center for Arts and Media, GAM Santiago, Power Station of Art Shanghai, Volksbühne Berlin, Rotterdam International Film Festival, Harvard Carpenter Center for Visual Arts, MoMA New York, The Louvre, among others.
